This new edition is a concise introduction to the basic methods of computational physics. Readers will discover the benefits of numerical methods for solving complex mathematical problems and for the direct simulation of physical processes. The book is divided into two main parts: Deterministic methods and stochastic methods in computational physics. Based on concrete problems, the first part discusses numerical differentiation and integration, as well as the treatment of ordinary differential equations. This is extended by a brief introduction to the numerics of partial differential equations. The second part deals with the generation of random numbers, summarizes the basics of stochastics, and subsequently introduces Monte-Carlo (MC) methods. Specific emphasis is on MARKOV chain MC algorithms. The final two chapters discuss data analysis and stochastic optimization. All this is again motivated and augmented by applications from physics. In addition, the book offers a number of appendices to provide the reader with information on topics not discussed in the main text. Numerous problems with worked-out solutions, chapter introductions and summaries, together with a clear and application-oriented style support the reader. Ready to use C++ codes are provided online.

"Basic Concepts in Physics: From the Cosmos to Quarks" is the outcome of the authors' long and varied teaching experience in different countries and for different audiences, and gives an accessible and eminently readable introduction to all the main ideas of modern physics. The book’s fresh approach, using a novel combination of historical and conceptual viewpoints, makes it ideal complementary reading to more standard textbooks. The first five chapters are devoted to classical physics, from planetary motion to special relativity, always keeping in mind its relevance to questions of contemporary interest. The next six chapters deal mainly with newer developments in physics, from quantum theory and general relativity to grand unified theories, and the book concludes by discussing the role of physics in living systems. A basic grounding in mathematics is required of the reader, but technicalities are avoided as far as possible; thus complex calculations are omitted so long as the essential ideas remain clear. The book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students in physics and will also be appreciated by many professional physicists. It will likewise be of interest to students, researchers and teachers of other natural sciences, as well as to engineers, high-school teachers and the curious general reader, who will come to understand what physics is about and how it describes the different phenomena of Nature. Not only will readers of this book learn much about physics, they will also learn to love it.

The opportunity to present the physics of radioactive processes in some detail apart from topics such as instrumentation which conventionally compete with it for spacer is most welcome. The material is intended to give a fairly complete introduction to radiation physics to those who which to have more than a descriptive understanding of the subject. Although it is possible to work one’s way through much of the subject matter without having any previous physics background, some prior acquaintance with modern physics is desirable. A familiarity with calculus and differential equations is also assumed. Volume I begins with a brief description of classical physics, it’s extension to special relativity and quantum mechanics, and an introduction to basic atomic and nuclear concepts. A thorough discussion of atomic structure follows with emphasis on the theory of the multielectron atom, characteristic X-rays, and the Auger effect. Volume II treats the subjects of nuclear structure, nuclear decay processes, the interaction of radiation with matter, and the mathematics of radioactive decay.

Basic Physics of Nanoscience: Traditional Approaches and New Aspects at the Ultimate Level deals with the description of properties at the Nano level and self-organizing quantum processes of Nano systems. The book presents the state of the art as well as theoretical discussions of future developments, beginning with simple Nano systems’ sensitivity to small variations in interaction potential compared to bulk cases, and continuing with a discussion of the structure and dynamics of Nano systems as a function of temperature. Additionally, the book analyzes self-organizing quantum processes—which are essential in the design of new Nano systems—in detail, and explores new aspects related to the quantum theoretical nature of time, leading to an expansion of the basic laws through nanotechnology. Finally, the book explores the effect of nanotechnological manipulations of brain functions and the need for the development of reliable models for the matter-mind complex. This innovative approach to understanding Nano systems makes Basic Physics of Nanoscience a vital resource for advanced students and researchers of physics, materials science, and neuroscience. • Discusses nanoscience at the ultimate level where the properties of molecular (atomic) matter emerge • Presents classical approaches in nanoscience as well as new aspects such as the quantum-physical nature of time • Features an interdisciplinary approach, including physics, behavior research, brain research, the matter–mind–problem, and philosophical implications

When the ?rst edition ofBasic Semiconductor Physics was published in 2001, there were already many books, review papers and scienti?c journals de- ing with various aspects of semiconductor physics. Since many of them were dealing with special aspects of newly observed phenomena or with very f- damental physics, it was very di?cult to understand the advanced physics of semiconductors without the detailed knowledge of semiconductor physics. For this purpose the author published the ?rst edition for the readers who are involved with semiconductor research and development. Basic Semiconductor Physics deals with details of energy band structures, e?ective mass eq- tion and k·p perturbation, and then describes very important phenomena in semiconductors such as optical, transport, magnetoresistance, and quantum phenomena. Some of my friends wrote to me that the textbook is not only basic but advanced, and that the title of the book does not re?ect the c- tents. However, I am still convinced that the title is appropriate, because the advanced physics of semiconductor may be understood with the knowledge of the fundamental physics. In addition new and advanced phenomena - served in semiconductors at an early time are becoming well-known and thus classi?ed in basic physics. After the publication of the ?rst edition, many typographical errors have been pointed out and the corrected version was published in 2006. The p- lisher and my friends persuade me to revise the book adding new chapters, keeping the subject at the appropriate level.
